Andis Art Experience - Jennifer Peart
|Sun, Apr 7, 2024
|12:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Join us for an artist reception and opening featuring the talented Jennifer Peart!
Jennifer Peart is a contemporary landscape painter based in Sacramento, California. She grew up in the nearby Sierra Nevada foothills where she developed a deep relationship with landscape and place. Peart studied drawing and painting through Sacramento community colleges before transferring to Mills College, Oakland where she received her degree in Studio Art. Upon graduation, she went into Education and taught for over ten years in California public schools. On a summer hike in Yosemite, she decided to pivot away from the classroom and pursue her art full-time. Instead of teaching students to envision a better future, Peart now freely creates her own alternative realities and parallel worlds.
"I look specifically to mid-century American architecture and works of science (visionary) fiction to feed my own optimism for the future of life on Earth. Through painting, I explore the faded idealism found in improbable utopian visions and our failed attempts to control Nature.
My new nowheres re-contextualize motifs found in typical renderings of ideal architectural models and Shangri-La landscapes to give that abandoned desire a new launchpad. My aim is to emphasize the correlation between architectural and psychological space by taking new liberties in my approach to the medium."
We look forward to sharing this special afternoon with you as we celebrate the intersection of art and wine at Andis Wines.
Complimentary Wine Tasting, Nibbles & Bites.
Jennifer's art will be for sale and on display until July 1, 2024.
Jennifer will be hosting a watercolor class at Andis Wines on Sunday, April 21, 2024.
